high tension USUALLY means more control...so more controlled volleys i suppose

better volleys = better volleys.
if you're bad at volleying changing tension won't magically make you sampras. don't get caught in the gear trap.

I dont think it makes a big difference .. my racket is strung pretty low and my volleys are very good ... i can volley with any racket .. i can play tennis with any racket or string ..

I believe doubles specialists do string them tighter.

If you are bad at volleys then I think tighter tensions will help out big time. The problem most people have at the net is that they "overhit". Their reactions are very reflexive and they tend to overhit. Tight strings will force more control and force a bad volleyer to keep balls in play that he would normally hit out....but shouldn't this subject be in the stringing section?

To optimize your volleys, the most important thing you need is the proper power level from your stringbed. If your strings are too loose, you will lack depth control. If your strings are too tight, you may end up swinging too much to generate power. That said, most 3.0-4.0 players string their racquets too loose for optimal control on volleys, making low volleys difficult.
